    Heyo, gentlemen and kind women. While I'm still stumped on how to message(?help a gal out?), I figure in the meantime, I'll introduce myself proper, and ask about y'allselves!

    I'm a New Orleanian if my accent didn't already give me away, I've been through a little and a lot like most peoples. I see Destee.com as a very respectable site holding onto much love; much more than can be said for most community pages online. I see the people on Destee...and that's it! I see the people and hope some see me and what I have to offer. I've been through Hurricane Katrina. I was 14 then, and felt the truth of mortality! Life sunk in that much more!

    What about y'allselves? Any from N.O. like myself? Any been through any storms like Katrina, literally or metaphorically? Any views on life to share? Any just wanna say "hi"? Come on! Work with me!:lol:

    Not too much has changed, save there are more Mexican folks, more white people are living in black neighborhoods from what I've seen, and every block has a tore down house seemingly never to be fixed. And it snowed, as you can see in my avatar pic, lol

    He was born in a lake? And raised in it??? Kidding, kidding. Cool, that's a nice looooong walk from my house! :D lol

    Aww, come on nah! Walking helps me a ton in movement of the body and working these legs; it's only when I gotta dodge traffic that makes me reconsider:eek: ...sometimes.
